I outsourced a small job to a colleague in Italy. I thought about using Moneybookers, but the amount is very low (around $30.00), and I'm not sure how much they'll charge me to transfer the money from my US bank to my Moneybookers account. I'd like to hear about other people's experiences with sending small amounts from the US to EU contries and how much money Moneybookers deduct in these situations.

I have EURO account in Moneybookers Feb 5, 2007

In euros they charge 1.80 for uploading the money. In USD should be similar small amount.
I don't know about Paypal as it does not work in our country.

ask your bank Feb 10, 2007

Moneybookers will charge you 30 american cents for sending 30 dollars to Italy.

The biggest charge will be the one your bank charges you to upload funds to moneybookers. You need to find out with them.

You can upload 30 dollars using credit card option as well. It will be 1.9% of the amount = 0.57 usd

It works out about 87 cents in total for the remittance.

In case you have no any other charges related with your card, it seems to be a reasonable cost...
